(A) Elegance
(B) Executive
(C) Smooth
(D) Soft


Answer: (B)

Explanation: Revenue from Elegance = (27300+25222+28976+21012) * Rs. 48 = Rs. 4920480
Revenue from Smooth = (20009+19392+22429+18229) * Rs. 63 = Rs. 5043717
Revenue from Soft = (17602+18445+19544+16595) * Rs. 78 = Rs. 5630508
Revenue from Executive = (9999+8942+10234+10109) * Rs. 173 = Rs. 6796132
Total Revenue = Rs. 22390837
 
Fraction of Revenue for Elegance = 0.219
Fraction of Revenue for Smooth = 0.225
Fraction of Revenue for Soft = 0.251
Fraction of Revenue for Executive = 0.303
 
Thus, B (Executive) is the correct answer.
